In this step, you will setup your SHOUTcast Source to broadcast to your Primcast streaming audio server.
In order to proceed, you need to know your server address, port number and password.
You will be able to find these in the Welcome E-mail you received from Primcast shortly after your purchase.
To begin setting up your SHOUTcast Source, click on the Output tab. [See figure 1.5]
You will need to complete the Address, Port and Password fields.
Enter the address of your Primcast server. This will generally be youraccountname.primcast.com. DO NOT include a http:// or www prefix.
Next, enter the port number for your SHOUTcast server. This is generally a 4 digit number, and it can also be found in the Welcome E-mail. Entering a value other than a number will produce an error when connecting.
Finally, enter the password to your SHOUTcast server, provided to you in the Welcome E-mail. The password is case sensitive, so make sure you type it correctly.
Note: Please do not forget or lose your password, as you will not be able to connect without it.
The other features on the Output tab are optional. Check "Connect at Startup" to have SHOUTcast Source connect to the server when you start Winamp.
Check "Automatic Reconnection on Connection Failure" to have SHOUTcast Source automatically reconnect to your Primcast server if the connection fails.
The "Reconnection Timeout" field tells SHOUTcast Source how much time to pause between each reconnection attempt. I recommend that you leave the
reconnection timeout at 0 seconds. In this case SHOUTcast source will attempt to reconnect immediately if the connection does drop.
